Muddy Waters had a great ear for talent and accordingly the formation accompanying him on this DVD was one of the very best:
The pianist Pinetop Perkins, drummer Willie Big Eyes Smith, bass player Calvin Jones, the two guitarists LutherGuitar Jr. Johnson and Bob Margolin and harmonica player Jerry Portnoy.
At Westfalenhalle Dortmund on December 10, 1978 for the Rockpalast recording Muddy Waters still was at the height of his creative power, his mighty vocals and his splendid charisma on stage fascinated the audience. Muddy's guitar playing on the Fender Telecaster especially comes into full effect with his typical slow blues solos - and seldom had Muddy such a hot sound as in this TV recording of the WDR. The song selection of the evening consisted of several of his biggest hits, but also less performed titles.
